OOAK art doll sculpting tip!

This is for new sculptors:
If you are serious about sculpting, you need to learn about sculpting and smoothing with a brush. Often, just the pressure or push of a brush will give you a subtle indentation that creates the right shadowing on a face. A brush is also what you need to smooth out a face or other body part. A filbert with natural bristles is what I use, along with a touch of mineral oil. Don't use too much oil, or you will end up with gooey clay. I use my brush a lot! It is the only way to blend and finish your doll faces.

Hope this helps you on your art doll journey!
